Hip Pain

In Pain? Schedule Your Appointment Today!

Hip pain is a common yet serious problem, especially in older patients (although many children under the age of 15 develop hip pain as well). Hip pain is often confused with back pain and other conditions, since sufferers may feel discomfort anywhere in the hip area–on the upper thigh, the outer buttock, and even the groin. The hip meets the thigh and the pelvis at a socket called the acetabulum. This socket is composed of muscles, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, and all of these are prone to damage if an injury is sustained. Hip pain can be severely limiting, and if it isn’t assessed by a pain management professional, can worsen to the point of immobility. Some factors that contribute to the likelihood of hip pain are obesity, prior hip injury, being female, and age (the older you are, the greater your risk of developing hip problems).
